The A-Ha Moments

Everything has to start somewhere.

The New Year brings with it a start of something unknown. What are you looking for now? What hopes and dreams have been on the burner since childhood, what never began? And what realizations have you come to along the way that have made you less naive than in the beginning?

This is the night we look at beginnings, good and bad - the seeds of things, thoughts, ideas, and events, that started out small and became big enough to steer your life in a particular direction. Perhaps it's a romance, or a moment of decision that changed your life or someone else's. Maybe you have a story about how something started out one way, and ended very differently from the way you thought it would.  Whatever your story, we'll run it through the metaphor machine and see what comes out in song, dance, and drama as your jaw drops in astonishment.

About Playback Theater:

Playback Theater is an improvisational form of theater whereby audience members tell stories from their lives and watch them enacted on the spot by actors and musicians. Playback is a vehicle not only of personal expression, but a way to create a future  It is powerful and creative, allowing diverse voices to be heard and respected.

Public shows are:

* Original - no two shows are ever the same

* Create a comfortable forum to hear and tell personal stories

* Honors the individual voice of the story teller

* Build community in a creative and engaging manner

* Wildly entertaining!

"It's like nothing I've ever seen -part campfire stories, part drama, dance, metaphor, comedy, and improv all mixed in with an exuberant sort of ecstatic informal community therapy!"
